ACC and Me Book

Did you know there is a book for kids
about ACC?

It's true AND it's adorable too. I have
a copy of the book for my own child,
Matthew, who has complete Agenesis of the
Corpus Callosum.

ACC and Me is a children's book about a
10 year old boy who has Agenesis of the
Corpus Callosum (ACC).

The book is illustrated in beautiful,
colorful drawings and explains what the
corpus callosum is in simple, easy to
understand language.

ACC and Me is a perfect teaching tool
for your child's classroom to help
inform and educate your child's teacher
and classmates about ACC.

ACC and Me is written by Kathryn J. Schilmoeller
and Lynn K. Paul and is illustrated by
Cindy Mauro Reisenauer. All three women
have experience with ACC.

Kathryn J. Schilmoeller, writer, is the
co-founder of the ACC Network as well as the
mom of a grown son with ACC who is high

Lynn K. Paul, writer, is the Director of the
Corpus Callosum Research Program at Caltech
as well as the founding President for the
National Organization For Disorders of the
Corpus Callosum. (NODCC).

Cindy Mauro Reisenauer, illustrator, is the
mom of a grown child with ACC.

  1. Too bad that they don't have it in french(in finnish is maybe even too much to ask lol). I would understand everything but I rather read a book to my kids either in french or in finnish. Well maybe they will publish it someday :)

  2. Kirsi,

    I understand your desire to have the book in your own language for your kids. It's a great idea and I hope that someday it will be published in other languages. :)


  3. Sandie,

    I received a letter from this organization saying they would no longer continue their services due to low funds?? Is this correct I really wish to order the book for Brianna:( Let me know if you know anything

  4. Hi Araceli,

    I received an e-mail today from Gary Schilmoeller at the ACC Network with respect to the ACC & Me books. Gary informed me that the ACC Network has a small supply of books to mail out at this time. You can request up to FIVE copies of the book per person. He anticipates that the supply of ACC & Me books will last approximately one month. When they run out of books they will be referring people to the National Organization for Disorders of the Corpus Callosum (NODCC).

    There is no formal charge for the ACC & Me book through the ACC Network. The ACC Network sends a donation envelope with the book should someone wish to make a donation to help defray costs.



I am very interested in reading your comments and
look forward to hearing from you. Thank you.
